Australia's Largest Collection of Militaria Uncovered
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Australia's Largest Collection of Militaria Uncovered

BRISBANE, Australia, Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Some of the rarest items ever to be offered to the public have been discovered in Australia in shipping containers and storage sheds containing a lifetime collection of militaria from all around the world.

Over 10,000 items across many acres constituted a lifelong military collector's passion. "We were in complete disbelief when we arrived to inspect the collection," said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctioneers and Valuers in Australia.

"These are some of the rarest militaria collectables from WWI and WWII that we have ever seen, there is everything from military tanks to firearms, swords, military uniforms, helmets, boots and heavy artillery," said Mr. Hames.

"As we were uncovering the special collection of militaria, we came across some very rare pieces many of which are "one off" and may be worth significant amounts of money," continued Mr. Hames.

The "Rod Bellars Collection" was built by Rod over 60 years, accumulating items from all around the world. Sadly, his recent passing has meant these amazing icons of history have to find new custodians.

"We really hope that museums and libraries and passionate collectors from across the world are successful in securing some of these important pieces of history, so they can be preserved and displayed and educate people for many years into the future," continued Mr. Hames.
